Found a diamond flip it card die at my LSS so 'had' to buy it! Tried it first using one cutting plate, die, c/s and crease pad-this sandwich didn't cut through either end. Second and third tries I added shims but die still didn't cut completely through the c/s. Tried using 2 cutting plates and the die cut through both ends but the creases were hard to see but guess this is the sandwich for my machine.

Bought the circle flip-it die the other day and on the first try, it cut through nearly everything. Have to try some other combinations, like you did.

These flip it dies all seem to be the rave now, I saw one done by Elizabeth Designs with peel offs and glitter. As I love to work with her peel offs, I wanted to give it a try, I don't have a sixxix, Big Shot etc, so would have to use a Cuttle Bug. I know that everyone says the Sixxix dies can be used with the CB, but has anyone actually tried the flip it dies?? I want to be sure I can use it with my CB before I purchase one as they are kind of pricey. Thanks. Joan

Yes, you can use the flip-it dies with the Cuttlebug. The Big Shot is a sturdier machine and may work longer, but each machine is different and each has different "sweet spots" where the die cuts the best. [My first CB broke after barely a year - the handle broke off.] So if you have troublesome spots after running it through, you may need to shim it in those places. One flip-it cut through everything on the CB, even the score lines, but cut just perfectly on the Big Shot. There are no guarantees. Ask the store manager if you can try it before you buy the die. The ones in my area (Chattanooga, TN) are already being marked down at least 40%. I think the flip-its make really cute cards and are especially appealing to first timers and to the recipient who has never seen one before.

I have had my CB for several years, so I am sure I will have to use some shims but I would like to give it a try, Thanks for the info.

Just remembered something else. There are videos on YouTube about how to use Spellbinders and make a flip-it card. The trick is in the folding and how far up to cut the paper. Here is one video: How to Make a Flip It Card - YouTube

I'm having the same issue and I'm about to return the die

I don't have a crease pad so I am not familiar with them but my first thought is that the die would cut through the crease pad if not the first time then over time. I understand that it would score (where it should) I'm just thinking it would cit on the edges.

These dies seem very confusing. I don't own any, but I saw them being demo'ed at the Scrapbook Expo last month. When I asked the demo if you needed the crease pad to use the dies, she said no. However, when I looked at her samples, most of them had been taped where the scoring part of the die had cut through the cardstock.

The need for a crease pad depends on the pressure your die cut machine. Some have a little more than others, so some crease fine and others need the crease pad.

Both the Bigz XL and the Framelits Flip-its fit on the standard size plates which are 6" x 9". I usually cut my papers 6" X 8 1/2".
